> Email confirmation emails (when creating an account) and password reset emails aren't
always making it to users.  There are at least a couple reasons for this:
> * the emails are getting flagged as spam and the user doesn't check the spam folder
> ** perhaps in some cases the emails never ever reach the user if they are marked as spam
and stopped at the email server
> * the user mis-types their email address
> Possible fixes:
> * Can we find out what is causing emails to be flagged as spam? Is there a way to make
the emails seem less "spammy"?
> ** See for example https://stackoverflow.com/a/396
> * Require that users type in their email address twice in order to confirm it. This should
help prevent typos.
> * Can we determine if an email bounces back? This might be tricky since I think email
bounce backs are asynchronous.  Perhaps having the user confirm their email address is the
best we can do.
> Workarounds:
> * use CILogon instead of account creation/password reset.
